Dear Island Neighbors,
2020: IT WAS A BUSY YEAR FOR SULLIVAN’S ISLAND, OUR HOMETOWN
No doubt the year that recently (and thankfully) exited the stage was exhausting for nearly everyone. Our great Town employees may well have felt the same way, and they certainly earned it, what with their multitude of accomplishments during the challenges of the year. They should all take pride in their achievements, and the Mayor and Council can take pride in the dedicated and knowledgeable staff that did these things (while we may try to claim the credit!).
Here are just some of the Town’s 2020 accomplishments, compiled by our able and committed Town Administrator, Andy Benke, who has led the efforts that resulted in them:
REMINDER: CAUSEWAY SPEED LIMIT IS WAY LOWER ‘CAUSE OF CONSTRUCTION
Don’t forget that the speed limit on the entire causeway is lowered for the new Mount Pleasant water main construction project. Although the work is occurring on the Mount Pleasant section of the causeway, where the speed limit is now 30 mph, the speed limit has also been lowered on the Island side as well.
ANOTHER REMINDER: SULLIVAN’S ISLAND MUNICIPAL ELECTION, MAY 4!
The Island will have an important election on Tuesday, May 4, 2021. On the ballot will be three Council seats and the Mayor seat.
